  • Diamond Offshore, Transocean among drillers with top exposure to Petrobras [View news story]
    I agree but cronyism and corruption are kind of baked into the sociaiist/communist systems. It's hardly an exclusively capitalist trait.

  • Obama to unveil tougher climate change plan [View news story]
    Any reference to "climate change" reveals the speaker as either a fool or someone trying to use buzzwords to impress. The climate has been changing for billions of years. It means nothing.

  • GE may ship $10B in work overseas as Export-Import Bank languishes [View news story]
    I don't think it really matters to the US. Either we lose the funds through job loss or we lose the funds by by subsidizing the Exp-Imp bank. Either way GE wins and America loses. The only difference is that if you need a job you won't get it or if you pay taxes it will cost you. GE will not be hurt either way. I think business was always this cutthroat it's just that now it works on a global scale.

  • U.S. companies to invest $140B in support of U.N. climate change deal [View news story]
    If the discussion were about pollution it would seem like a worthwhile conversation. But since the conversation is about climate (and to call it "climate change" makes the discussion pretty much about nothing - the climate has been changing for billions of years with almost no input from humans) all that is apparent is that many people think they are far more powerful than they really are.
    It's a wonder that with those sized heads, very many people will even fit into the room.

  • Strong Upsides Beget 45% To 160% Net Gains For 10 Monthly Pay Dividend SML Dogs Come July 15, 2016 [View article]
    It appears that this list looks almost exclusively at the dividend and not the stock price, the company, it's sector, or the markets as they currently exist. Unless there is something I am missing, this information is worse than useless, it's potentially damaging.

  • P&G gets nailed by slack fill law again [View news story]
    Notice that even if the product had a problem, when sued the company pays money to the state of California, not to the people who were supposedly wronged. It's just sanctioned extortion.

  • Offshore drillers held back by lack of rig attrition, analyst says [View news story]
    These guys are so influential that the market follows everything they say. Yea, right, these numbers seem to indicate just the opposite: Transocean (RIG +1.7%), Noble Corp. (NE +0.8%) and Ocean Rig UDW (ORIG +0.6%).
    Just do the opposite of what these guys say and you should be OK.

  • Orange CEO apologizes, says firm will stay in Israel [View news story]
    Even if you don't agree completely with the Israeli government, does that mean you are willing to side with murderers and terrorist in throwing Israel and all Jews into the sea as so many of Israel's enemies have said they want to do?
    The level of rejection of critical thinking here is breathtaking.
    The fact that a day later he reversed himself says one of two things. 1. He got so much pressure that he relented. Or 2., he realized how foolish his stance on the previous day had been and what it meant and reversed course.

  • EPA fracking findings undercut environmentalists’ calls for regulation [View news story]
    The opposition is using the same ignorant argument they use in favor of fracking legislation as they do for gun legislation. They refuse to look at the responsible use of wells or guns.

    In the fracking discussion they refuse to look at the well construction aspect as the primary instigator of bad results and instead attempt to demonize fracking.
    In the gun discussion they refuse to look at the mental state of the gun user as the primary instigator of bad behavior and instead attempt to demonize the gun.

    Environmentalists and others of their ilk seem to be unable to distinguish responsible use from irresponsible use of whatever they are talking about.

    Hopefully clear thinking will triumph over knee jerk fanaticism. The EPA report appears to be a good start.

  • EPA: Fracking has had no "widespread, systemic" impact on drinking water [View news story]
    In response to bouzy, absolutely I believe there is nothing there. And the reason is as User 11243531 has said, if the EPA could have proven that fracking was injurious they would have jumped on it like a pack of lions on an antelope.
